    Becoming a Healthcare Leader introduces readers to theories, philosophies, strategies, methods, techniques, and lessons that have proven effective when applied to the field of healthcare management. The book shares insights from experienced hospital and healthcare leaders and prepares students for success in entry-level administrative positions and beyond.

    The material explores the important role leadership plays in an industry in transition, as well as what is needed to become an effective healthcare leader. In addition, it addresses specific leadership skills such as creating a culture of collaboration, fostering accountability, and putting motivational theories into practice. Students also learn about creating a strategic vision, developing a business planning cycle, marketing health service delivery, making business presentations, and dealing with the media.

    Becoming a Healthcare Leader is a practical tool for teaching and learning about becoming an effective healthcare leader at any level or position. It can be used in general healthcare management and leadership classes by those focused on becoming an effective healthcare leader, as well as by those already practicing leadership in a health service organization. Featuring newly added discussion questions, the book is equally effective for in-class, online, and hybrid courses.
